Build-To-Rent in Australia

Jake McKinnon • 07/06/2022
  • Build to rent (BTR), known elsewhere as multi-family residential, is a class of real estate assets encompassing institutionally 
    owned residential buildings, where individual units are rented to residents rather than sold to individuals (as in the traditional 
    build to sell (BTS) model).
  • The cash flow from such projects differs substantially from traditional BTS as revenues flow throughout the life of the 
    project rather than being received up front, while the owner faces maintenance and staffing costs. 
  • BTR sector is a nascent sector in the Australian commercial property market as tax incentives in the residential property 
    market have historically favoured capital gains over income.  However, BTR is expected to take off with the market to grow 
    nearly tenfold in the next five years. 
  • The Australian market could absorb much more than this given affordability issues, projected population growth and the current 
    diffuse ownership structure of residential property. These factors could form the basis for the market to sustain high levels of 
    growth for several years.
